The best goalkeepers do more than just stop shots. With each shot, their brain is making countless calculations to to determine how the body will respond. Reptition is critical. Today's modern goalkeeper must address and react to the increased demands and responsibilities of the position which extend beyond just standing between the posts. At VYS, we're proud to offer our goalies with opportunities to improve their skills and gameday performance.

Each session will offer high levels of intensity to create game-like situations and repetition to perfect the player’s skills.
